to move it in a liberal direction. >> the "new york times" editorial had this to say. mr. obama is smart enough to know that what he wants to achieve in his second term must be done in the next two years, perhaps even the first 18 months. there is no doubt that mr. obama has the ambition and intellect to place himself in the first rank of presidents. with this speech, he has made a forceful argument for a progressive agenda that meets the nation's needs. we hope he has the political will and tactical instincts to carry it out. lot of things in that quote, but one that struck me, we always talk about how it's a never-ending campaign now. is that what we're looking at now, a president has 18 months to get something done? >> i would be a little bit -- i would say six to eight months in terms of things he wants out of congress, because you know, this year, this spring, he's going to be asking a lot of democrats and republicans to cast votes that may cause them some problems in their states and their districts. by the end of this year, they are going to be thinking about the next election, th

're reducing the incidents of gun violence. >> president obama speaking today about what it will take to keep this country's children safe. joining me now is a man who sees things differently. welcome to you, mr. hutchinson. explain to me why the answer to a massacre at a school that killed 20 young children in this hideous manner and six adults, is to arm people at every school in america, over 20,000 schools. why is that the solution? >> i don't think you're quite accurately stating what my job is. what i said is one, it should be the decision of the local school district as to what kind of security you have in the schools. i do believe one element of that would be a trained, armed presence for schools that particularly have a particular risk. and today, we see from sandy hook elementary that virtually every school in america has some risk. and so a logical response to that is to provide greater protection and security. but this is a decision local school districts. my job is to bring some of the best security experts in the country together and look at what we can do better in our schools
